This is not a game of intentional heroes. 

It’s a game of thieves and adventurers, outcasts and desperate rogues sneering at the lives of laborers or sailors or dutiful spouses their fates decree, choosing to instead forge their own path, however sordid and sly and short-lived. Be a force for good or a ruthless knave; it’s your choice.

Bone and Black is a simple narrative-facing framework for playing solo and duet sword and sorcery adventures in the style of Norton, Lackey, and Leiber. It uses a cascading series of resolution mechanics to provide richly nuanced resolution and strongly narrative play.

... no hit points, no strength score, no modifiers. GM and/or dice optional but strongly recommended. Check out the actual plays in the screenshots.
